On August 14th, SLT received a grant from Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, kicking off a campaign to purchase a parcel of land under contract that would expand the Warren Woods Preserve by 16.5 acres, including critical land along the Nonesuch River.
This parcel adjoins our existing 156 acre Warren Woods Preserve. We are hoping to close on the property by the end of the year. In addition to adding to Warren Woods, this parcel will forever protect 1,400 linear feet of the Nonesuch River, forested wetlands and a mature forest. The parcel will also connect our Warren Woods Preserve to a Land Trust property on the east side of Gorham Road making a connected wildlife corridor for species such as deer, fox, otter, and more.
The purchase of this land will allow the Scarborough Land Trust to expand our existing trail system and provide additional lands open to hunting and fishing. Warren Woods also contains a diverse array of plant species, including plants found only in pitch pine bogs. Please consider donating to this campaign to help us preserve this special piece of land forever.
